True Love Knits (and Crochets)

I know, I know, Valentine’s Day is just over a week away and you have already finished all your handmade gifts for your sweethearts. Oh, what’s that you say? You haven’t? Well, I have a few ideas for you.

One of my favorite sayings about knitting for other people goes like this: Knitting is like sex. If I love you and you appreciate it, it’s free, otherwise, you can’t pay me enough. Knitting and crocheting is definitely an act of love. The amount of time that goes into handmade items makes them so valuable and cost prohibitive that most people would say they can’t afford them.

First off this adorable True Love Beanie pattern is so simple and cozy looking, I just want to make one for each of my kids and take ridiculously adorable matching pictures of them to make them hate me because they’re too old for that stuff (but they’re not and they’d be soooo cute!).

Check out these adorable love notes hats! You could make one of these in an evening or two! Perfect little handmade Valentine's Gift!

While we’re on the subject of hats (also because #polarvortex), this beginner knitting pattern for this Pixie Hat with Heart Applique is adorable and knits up quickly with a super bulky yarn.

If your knitting skills are a little more advanced, you can make this absolutely adorable xoxo beanie. Isn’t it great? What a fun pattern! There’s no mistaking that xo pattern!

Need to sharpen your knitting skills to take on one of these projects? Check out some online knitting classes from Blueprint!

Maybe you’re up to your eyeballs in hats, though. You have twice as many feet as you do heads, so you should need twice as many socks, right? If hand-knit socks doesn’t say love, what does, amiright? Check out this creative pattern: Key to My Heart Knit Socks.

Perhaps handmade toys are the love language of your sweetheart. If that’s the case, you could crochet this sweet and understated Amelie doll. Isn’t she adorable? I love her.

And this cute little Double Heart crochet pattern is another excellent choice for a handmade toy. Love their little hugging arms!

For a less obvious handmade Valentine’s Day gift, but still adorable (and who doesn’t love something a little unexpected?) take a look at this sweet amigurumi baby sloth teether toy.

Remember, friends, true love knits. You still have some time to whip up one of these lovely patterns for someone you love. It’s always a good time to tell people you care about how you feel.

Beautiful Beanies

Hats! Toques! Beanies! Winter Caps! Warmth for your head! Check out this wonderful collection of warm winter hats to knit and crochet! Time to get out the yarn and get working! Christmas is coming and these hats would make an awesome handmade gift that anyone would be delighted to receive!

I love this cabled Alpine Beanie Pattern. It looks knit, but it’s crochet! 

I’ve posted other plaid crocheted hat patterns before, but if you’re a knitter, this Pumpkin Pie Knitting Pattern is a great chunky knit hat for you to practice your plaid.

Check out this awesome diamond embellished Knit Regan Beanie pattern! Also a chunky knit, it would work up quickly! I love the colour choices in this example, too! Which colours would you choose?

Here’s another crocheted pattern, this Crochet Dandelion Slouch Beanie Pattern is worked up with a self-striping yarn, probably with a Caron Cake or something. So cute. I love this colour choice too!

The Toph Slouchy Beanie Hat Knitting Pattern looks almost surreal! As a relatively experienced knitter, I have no idea how I would begin to make this, so I would totally need to buy the pattern! I have about 5 or 6 patterns that I still need to make right now, so I’ll have to put this one on hold for now! Will you make it and show me?

There are so many creative ways to work colour into crocheted hats, like this Speckled Ridge Hat Crochet Pattern. I love the chunky pops of colour. And those yarn pompoms are super easy to make with a pompom maker. I love mine!

I’ve been meaning to learn this woven crochet stitch in this Crochet Hat Pattern! It looks so lovely in this hat! I want one!

Of course, not all of us have time to make it all, but you can still have a handmade Knitted hat with pompom, if you’re willing to part with a little more money! You get the finished work of a skilled craftsperson and none of the work! Sounds like a win to me! With the gift-giving season drawing ever closer, it’s time to get those orders in!

Here’s another great option for the time-crunched, the Ski Bunny Knit Hat. This one is a lovely chunky, cable-knit toque, perfect for the ski hill. How cute will you look skiing this holiday in this gorgeous beanie? 

Pick up a pattern and some yarn today and you might have a hat by tomorrow (if you’re fast)! Or pin it so you don’t forget (or share it with your sister so she can make you one… that’s what my sisters do).

Such a pretty collection of winter hat patterns to knit and crochet (even a couple you can just order if you don't knit or crochet)! #beanie #winterhat #toque #crochet #knit #patterns #yarn #crafts #craftevangelist
